[osg-users] Mac bundle distribution can't use plugin

Hi, thanks for the answer but I am using CMake/regular makefiles to do
all my building and using the "OSX Ingest into bundle" script that
comes with osg. I just presumed it did all magic but maybe I should
check out the actual paths in the libs. I'll be back with a report.
